Original Text

The Detroit Tigers will need to find a way to hold their lead in the American League Central without starting pitcher Anibal Sanchez for the next 15 days. 

Chris Iott of MLive.com has the details:

Sanchez was forced off the mound after just two and two-thirds innings in his start April 26 against the Minnesota Twins due to the injury. He will apparently need at least 15 days before he finds his way back to the mound again. 

The injury will certainly hurt the Tigers' excellent rotation in the short term. The 30-year-old boasted a 3.13 ERA through five starts this season and was the AL ERA champion in the 2013 season with an ERA of 2.57. 

At the time of Sanchez's injury, the Tigers held a one-game lead over the Twins in the AL Central with a record of 12-9. Iott also reports that the Tigers will call up right-hander Justin Miller from Triple-A Toledo in response to Sanchez's injury.
